Hiring Policy

Hiring Policy

As a matter of global policy, Fried Frank does not discriminate in hiring or promotion on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, gender, gender identity and expression, pregnancy, age, disability, sexual orientation, family status, religion, marital status, citizenship, veteran status, an individual's genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.

We maintain a professional business environment and a workplace that is free from harassment and from any intimidation of a verbal or physical nature. Hostile or offensive actions, or actions that take on a pattern of harassment, that discriminate against a group defined by race, creed, color, national origin, sex, gender, gender identity and expression, pregnancy, age, disability, sexual orientation, family status, religion, marital status, citizenship, veteran status, an individual's genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law or against an individual because of membership in such a group, are not acceptable. In order to maintain an environment free of unlawful discrimination, intimidation or harassment, the complete cooperation and support of all of our personnel are essential and expected. Violation of this policy may result in immediate disciplinary action and possible dismissal.

This policy applies to all applicants, partners, and employees, including attorneys, administrative staff members (including paid or unpaid interns, contractors, and observers), and includes all terms and conditions of employment, such as recruitment, hiring, compensation, training, promotion, transfer, disciplinary action and termination and all aspects of our business. Our policy applies to all daily interactions within the workplace and in other work-related settings, such as business trips, court appearances, and business-related social events.
